Putin to Attend BRICS Summit in South Africa, Despite ICC Warrant

The Kremlin has said that Russia will take part in the BRICS summit in South Africa at the “proper level.” The summit is scheduled to take place in August, and it is unclear whether Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend in person.

South Africa is a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which has issued an arrest warrant for Putin for alleged war crimes in Ukraine. However, South Africa has not said whether it will arrest Putin if he attends the summit.

The Kremlin has said that Russia attaches “enormous importance” to the BRICS summit, and that it will take part “at the proper level.” However, it has not specified what this means.

The BRICS summit is an annual meeting of the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. The group represents some of the world’s leading emerging economies, and it has been growing in importance in recent years.

The summit is expected to focus on a number of issues, including economic cooperation, trade, and security. It is also expected to be overshadowed by the war in Ukraine.

The Kremlin’s announcement that Russia will take part in the summit is a sign that the country is not backing down from its involvement in the war. It is also a sign that Russia is still committed to its relationships with the other BRICS countries.

However, the uncertainty surrounding Putin’s attendance at the summit is a reminder of the challenges that the BRICS countries face in trying to maintain their unity in the face of the war in Ukraine.
